Hey everyone iv been on fordmods for a few months now and thought i would let everyone know what there is to know about my ford!

About 3 months ago i brought this 95 EFII Fairmont of a family man in melbourne for only $2800! It has done 151000kms and had been service regularly by ford. The interior is in unbelievable condition for a car that is 14 years old.

***PIC

So after getting it home and swapping the rego ova i started doing my mods. Its my first car so iv stuck to simple mods that make it look a heap better.
- First off was the 2.5 inch cat back exhaust with twin 2.5 inch exhaust.

-Then i lowered it my self with some second hand super low springs that only cost me $100 and they had done 15000 kms. They made the rims look heaps better!

-Got the window tinted.

-Got it put on Gas with a second hand tank that has a new safety check that will last 10years so that only set me back $200.

-I put a new alpine head unit, 6X9 in the back and 6 inch splits in the doors.

- Got a new grill chrome on ebay off a fairlane i think.

- I hunted around for a set of second hand turning lights but could only find them on ebay and they were going for $150+. I price them at ford and ended up buying them brand new for $200.

- Put in chrome door handle from ebay

- Replaced the front headlights as they were a faded yellow color that wouldn't clean out.

- And at the moment i a a few days off getting a set of pre au 18inch BA GTP rims an tyres for it, after alot of heart ache!! I swear i rang 20 different places that said yeh i have them and then 5 min later ring back to say na sorry mate there out of stock. thats only half of my troubles with that.....

and when i find them im gunna put in a leather gear shifter with the chrome button and a chrome button in the hand brake just so smarten it up a bit. And in a few months time ill get the full exhaust done on it.

So yeah thats the story of my fairmont to date...

i will attach some pics soon

Hey yeah i got my license on Friday so it was probably me, i think i saw u when i was backing out of a park near the bowling ally? But yeah its going good... only bad thing is i have to get my head gasket done. It runs like a dog on petrol so best i get it fixed asap! I ordered my BA GTP's through tyre style in Drouin a few weeks ago so hopefully it wont be much longer before i get them. LOL yeah your spoiler would look way better with a Tickford body kit!
